11/14/2012- On our very first trail ride today (we're beginners) we rode to Murray Springs from Sierra Vista via Escapule Rd. The only sign on Escapule is a horse/hiking sign. The 2-track from Escapule was nice with a bit of sand and rock at one point. There was a cool wood bridge to ride over near the trail junction to Murray Springs from the Riparian trail and a fat Rattlesnake sitting just off the side of the bridge. We were not expecting to see one at this time of the year. We had to walk the bikes up a small and steep cliff. The trail east from there wasn't to bad, just a few places where the trails been washed out. Once we were at the Clovis Site there was a interpretive loop that was walk only, so no bikes on that. All in all it was a good ride.
